By now you will have received your 2017-18 subscription pack. This year starts off with a bang at the Greenyards in the BT Premiership against Watsonians on September the 2nd, and we shall see four home games in September, so make sure you have your membership sorted in good time for the kick-off.
We also have two trips to the west coast to make as we take on Ayr in the BT Charity Shield as well as our one away game for September in round 3 of the BT Premiership.
The first stage of the crowdfunding appeal has been launched and thank you to those that have already donated. We are not going to get a pitch for the community if we don't all do our bit. Melrose and the surrounding communities gave their support to opening up the Greenyards for greater community use, and the first stage of that has to be laying a synthetic pitch that allows daily use and the ability to host two games in quick succession. if you can, please give your support either direct to the Melrose 1883 Legacy Project, or via http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/melrose-rugby-club-legacy-project/
The work the rugby club already does in the community often goes unnoticed, with work done in schools and at weekends delivering a large part of the activity in the area under the government’s policy agenda for active children.
